It is 13F with a wind chill of 4f right now. Isn't even time to start dreaming of my raised bed gardens. May call a friends and go shoot some coyotes if the sun shines today.

Since it is just Kare and I now I stopped doing the big garden and went to 3 raised beds so far, I build with recycled 2x6's. Dirt I hauled from the woods real good top soil.

I used to have a regular garden and would turn in a bunch of loads of horse manure every year and never did have tomatoes grow like the ones in the raised beds. Early July they are almost 6 feet tall, I really need to learn to prune them and keep them down to where I can stake them up with out using big trees for the stakes.

May build a couple more this spring I have some more 2x6's on hand.

"Mostly sunny then becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon then becoming mostly cloudy. Highs in the upper 20s. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph increasing to 10 to 20 mph by afternoon. Lowest wind chill readings 3 below to 7 above zero in the morning."

Think I will call Eric and see if he wants to make a few sets this morning.
